Who Let the Cats Out? - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

There isn't much talk about the French painter Jacques Majorelle who put 40 years into creating Jardin Majorelle in Marrakesh, Morocco.  There has been a lot of talk about how Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé purchased the garden in 1980.  Probably for that reason, the garden is one of the most visited sites in Morocco.  And for that reason alone, we weren't going to visit the site.  One, I never did and was not interested in owning a YSL item (no offense to YSL).  Two, a garden is not meant to be enjoyed with so many others that are rubbing shoulders with you on a constant basis.

Well, that changed when we realized that the painter's studio is now a museum dedicated to Berber culture (note: Berber, a.k.a., Amazigh.  More on them later).

Boy, speaking of being mentally under-prepared!  Despite the scorching sun, lines for tickets were so long that it's as if fans of YSL were waiting outside one of its flagship stores for its new season debut.  Following a successful acquisition of the tickets to entrance, it's an upstream battle to fight our way through the crowd, endure the kids' screaming at the group of fish, and the pond that they are in, and get out of way of the selfie aficionado and selfie sticks.  

Finally, the museum was in-sight, along with its ever-so-inspiring colors, textures and shapes.  Oh, wait, all that inspiration has to wait.  It has to wait for more selfies and waves of them.  For an "abstract fine art" that I made above, I assure you, it was not an easy task.  

Seriously, who let the cats out?
